    Hiya,

    I wonder if anyone can help me. I've been hunting the internet for a solution to this... but no luck so far.

    My pc has picked up some kind of malware and now I have an advert for an adult entertainment site on my desktop, which appears spontaneously and when closed, reappears a few seconds later.

    Checking Task Manager - Processes has shown that the process is mshta.exe, located in C:\Windows\system32\mshta.EXE www.(adult entertainment site address).

    I can't delete this process as I don't have the permissions and after some research, I'm not even sure whether mshta.exe is a process that should be deleted. I've attempted to solve it with MalAware Bytes but no luck.

    Does anyone know what's going on/have any solutions?

    Rushi
